A quick confession. I'd never seen The Big Lebowski until this evening. A solid movie. Nice soundtrack.

"This is a a very complicated case Maude, a lot of ins and a lot of outs. You know, fortunatley I'm adhereing to a very strict drug regiment, you know, uh, that keeps my mind limber."

one of my alltime favs... hey, you ever notice how often characters repeat phrases they hear other characters say? the dude does it the most, but they all do it. it was intentionally written that way. i cant think of all of them now; havent seen the flick in years. i counted about 15 once. like in the begining when the dude is checking out at the grocery (paying 60 cents or so with a check) and he hears Bush on the tv say "this aggression will not stand" about iraq and kuwait, and he later uses that line on the big lebowski. go back and count; its fun.

the script: http://tinyurl.com/pfpnl

I never really thought of myself as a big fan, but I guess that I am. It is just so good...

I meant to post walter dealing with larry yesterday: "This is what happens when you FUCK a STRANGER in the ASS, Larry."

last one, but this scene always leaves me in stitches...

----

WALTER
Look, Larry...Have you ever heard of Vietnam?

DUDE
Oh, for Christ's sake, Walter!

WALTER
You're going to enter a world of pain, son. We know that this is your homework. We know you stole a car--

DUDE
And the fucking money!

WALTER
And the fucking money. And we know that this is your homework, Larry.

No answer.

WALTER
You're gonna KILL your FATHER, Larry!.

FINALLY, IN DISGUST:

WALTER
Ah, this is pointless.

As he shoves the homework back in the attache case:

WALTER
All right, Plan B. You might want to watch out the front window there, Larry.

He is heading for the door. The Dude, puzzled, rises to
follow him.

WALTER
This is what happens when you FUCK a STRANGER in the ASS, Larry.

OUTSIDE

Walter is striding down the lawn with his attache case like
an enraged encyclopedia salesman. Without looking back at,
the Dude, who follows:

WALTER
Fucking language problem, Dude.

He pops the Dude's trunk, flings in the briefcase and takes
out a tire iron.

WALTER
Maybe he'll understand this.

He is walking over to the Corvette.

WALTER
YOU SEE WHAT HAPPENS, LARRY!

CRASH! He swings the crowbar into the windshield, which shatters.

WALTER
YOU SEE WHAT HAPPENS?!

CRASH! He takes out the driver's window.

WALTER
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FUCK A
STRANGER IN THE ASS!

Lights are going on in houses down the street. Distant dogs bark.

WALTER
HERE'S WHAT HAPPENS, LARRY!

CRASH!

WALTER
HERE'S WHAT HAPPENS! FUCK A STRANGER IN THE ASS!

CRASH!
A man in a sleeveless T-shirt and boxer shorts has run over
behind Walter and grabbed him from behind on a back-swing of the crowbar.

MAN
WHAT THE FUCK JOO DOING, MANG?!

He wrestles the crowbar away from the startled Walter.

MAN
I JUS' BAWDEEZ FUCKEEN CAR LASS WEEK!

Walter cringes before the enraged Mexican.

WALTER
Hunh?

Hey veb and falc! Just watched it again with one of my kids, and I shit you not--I have seen it many times, BUT not for a few yrs, and tonight, besides laughing my ass off, I said, at one point, "isn't it great how he uses (dude) good lines from things he hears or sees on TV?" and the Bush one was one of em!? Frickin karmic synergy, falc!? He does it at the end with the cowboy using his line about the bear...when the dude meets him for the last time, and he is talking to him about donny passing.

Anyhow, I come here and find your post...absurd.

"[the Dude, Walter, and Donny walk out of the bowling alley, to find the three Nihilists waiting in front of the Dude's car, which has been torched]

The Dude: Well, they finally did it. They killed my fucking car.

Nihilist: Ve vant ze money, Lebowski.

Nihilist #2: Ja, uzzervize ve kill ze girl.

Nihilist #3: Ja, it seems you have forgotten our little deal, Lebowski.

The Dude: You don't HAVE the fucking girl, dipshits! We know you never did!

[the Nihilists, stunned, confer amongst themselves in German]

Donny: Are these the Nazis, Walter?

Walter Sobchak: No, Donny, these men are nihilists, there's nothing to be afraid of.

Nihilist: Ve don't care. Ve still vant ze money, Lebowski, or ve fuck you up.

Walter Sobchak: Fuck you. Fuck the three of you.

The Dude: Hey, cool it Walter.

Walter Sobchak: No, without a hostage, there is no ransom. That's what ransom is. Those are the fucking rules.

Nihilist #2: His girlfriend gave up her toe!

Nihilist #3: She though we'd be getting million dollars!

Nihilist #2: Iss not fair!

Walter Sobchak: Fair! WHO'S THE FUCKING NIHILIST HERE! WHAT ARE YOU, A BUNCH OF FUCKING CRYBABIES?

The Dude: Hey, cool it Walter. Look, pal, there never was any money. The big Lebowski gave me an empty briefcase, so take it up with him, man.

Walter Sobchak: And, I would like my undies back.

[Stunned, the Germans confer amongst themselves again]

Donny: Are they gonna hurt us, Walter?

Walter Sobchak: No, Donny. These men are cowards.

Nihilist: Okay. So we take ze money you haf on you, und ve calls it eefen.

Walter Sobchak: Fuck you."

Say what you like about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos

gotta agree with you on that...and a know a few of all three in real life...last sunday, I helped a "walter" with a mezuzah ceremony...it was priceless in many ways...

unfortunately no donny in this one:

DUDE
Walter, if you're there, pick up the
fucking phone. Pick it up, Walter,
this is an emergency. I'm not--

WALTER
Dude?

DUDE
Walter, listen, I'm at my place, I
need you to come pick me up--

WALTER
I can't drive, Dude, it's erev
shabbas.

DUDE
Huh?

WALTER
Erev shabbas. I can't drive. I'm
not even supposed to pick up the
phone, unless it's an emergency.

DUDE
It is a fucking emergency.

WALTER
I understand. That's why I picked
up the phone.

DUDE
THEN WHY CAN'T YOU--fuck, never mind,
just call Donny then, and ask him to--

WALTER
Dude, I'm not supposed to make calls--

DUDE
WALTER, YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE, WE GOTTA
GO TO PASADENA! COME PICK ME UP OR
I'M OFF THE FUCKING BOWLING TEAM!

later...

WALTER
I'm saying, I see what you're getting
at, Dude, he kept the money, but my
point is, here we are, it's shabbas,
the sabbath, which I'm allowed to
break only if it's a matter of life
and death--

DUDE
Walter, come off it. You're not
even fucking Jewish, you're--

WALTER
What the fuck are you talking about?

DUDE
You're fucking Polish Catholic--

WALTER
What the fuck are you talking about?
I converted when I married Cynthia!
Come on, Dude!

DUDE
Yeah, and you were--

WALTER
You know this!

DUDE
And you were divorced five fucking
years ago.

WALTER
Yeah? What do you think happens
when you get divorced? You turn in
your library card? Get a new driver's
license? Stop being Jewish?
